Argentina host Bolivia on Thursday with Lionel Scaloni’s side aiming to claim another win in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying.
The Albiceleste saw their weekend clash with Brazil called off in surreal circumstances with local health officials intervening once the game had kicked off.
Back on home soil and with all their players available against Bolivia, the two-time World Cup winners are clear favourites against one of the continent’s poorest sides.
Argentina vs Bolivia latest odds
Bolivia have not won a World Cup qualifier away from home since 1993 and bet365 offer them at 22/1 (23.00) to break that record against their southern neighbours.
Argentina, for their part, are priced at just 1/12 (1.08) while the draw can be backed at 9/1 (10.00).

Argentina vs Bolivia team news
Emiliano Martinez, Emiliano Buendia, Giovanni Lo Celso and Cristian Romero were the four Premier League players said to have breached coronavirus regulations causing the fiasco in Brazil.
Martinez, Romero and Lo Celso all started the game and would expect to feature from the off once more.
Lionel Messi is also likely to start the game despite having featured for just 24 minutes for new club Paris Saint-Germain this season.
La Verde will welcome striker Carmelo Algaranaz back from suspension, although defender Diego Berjarano remains sidelined through injury.
Argentina vs Bolivia preview
The visitors arrive in Buenos Aires with the worst defensive record in the CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying tournament having conceded 19 times in eight matches.
La Verde however have scored as many goals as their more illustrious opponents, with both teams having netted 12 times and there should be plenty of interest in backing goals at both ends, despite Bolivia’s awful away record.
Cesar Farias’ team have netted in each of their last three away World Cup qualifiers, the most recent of which saw them score twice in a 4-2 defeat in Uruguay at the weekend.
Bolivia have conceded in each of their last 24 games in all competitions, so Argentina will be confident of finding the back of the net.
Argentina vs Bolivia tips & predictions
Both teams to score is offered at 11/4 (3.75) and offers sensational value given Bolivia have scored in each of their last three meetings with Argentina.
